OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH

At Abundant Life Fellowship we believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, in whom we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28)!  Relating to this beautiful truth are the following basic truths by which we believe, teach, preach and practice: 

1. The verbal inspiration of the accepted canon of Sacred Scriptures as originally given. (2 Timothy 3:16; 1 Corinthians 2:13)

2.  The Holy Trinity of the Godhead. (Matthew 28:10; Colossians 2:9)

3. The Creation, Test and the Fall of man, as recorded in Genesis; his total spiritual depravity, and inability to attain to Divine Righteousness.  (Romans 5:12)

4. The Savior of man is the Lord Jesus Christ who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a Virgin, lived a sinless life to be the perfect sacrifice for mankind's sins, who being fully God and fully man.  (Luke 1:26; John 1:18; Isaiah 9:6)

5.  Christ died on the cross for our sins, was buried and rose again on the third day after His death, He personally appeared to His disciples for forty days after His resurrection and then He ascended into Heaven. (1Corinthians 15:1-4; Romans 4:25)

6. Salvation of sinnersby grace alone through faith alone in the perfect and sufficient work of the cross of Calvary.  (Ephesians 2:8-9; Hebrews 9:12; Romans 5:11)

7. Baptism of the repentant believer in water, a holy act of command by God’s Word.  The body of the believer (immersed) completely under water.  In this act of obedience and faith, the believer is identifying with the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ(Acts 2:38; Romans 6:4; Matthew 28:19; Colossians 2:11-12)

8. The gifts of the Spirit as enumerated in 1 Corinthians chapters 12-14 being exercised as manifested in the early church are available as God wills.

9. The baptism of the Holy Spirit takes place at conversion. When the Holy Spirit regenerates the lost person He baptizes him into the Body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:12-13).     

10. The Spirit-filled life, is a life of separation from the world and the perfecting of holiness in the fear of God as an expression of Christian faith.  (Ephesians 5:8; 2 Corinthians 6:14; 7:1)

11. Healing of the Believers body is available according to the Sovereign will of God to those who ask.  (Acts 4:30; Romans 8:11; 1 Corinthians 12:9; James 5:14; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24; Mark 16:17-20)

12. The Lord's Memorial, commonly called the Lord's Supper (Holy Communion) is to be regularly taken by all Believers in Christ as a way to proclaim His death until He returns. (1 Corinthians 11:12-32)

13. The two-fold Bodily return of Jesus Christ. First the Blessed Hope of the Church which we call the Rapture when Jesus returns to take His Bride the Church back with Him to heaven and secondly the return of Jesus Christ with His Saints at the end of the Tribulation Period to this earth to establish His millennial reign.  (John 14:2-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, 1 Corinthians 15:51-54, Revelation 19:11-19)

14. The Eternal Life of the Believer in Christ through faith in Jesus Christ.  (John 3:16; Romans 3:23; Romans 10:9-10)

15. The Eternal Punishment of the unbeliever. (Mark 9:43-58; 2 Thessalonians 1:9; Revelation 20:10-15; John 3:18; Romans 6:23)

16. The reality and personality of Satan, enemy of our God and His Church. (Job 1:7; 2 Corinthians 11:14; Ephesians 4:27;  James 4:7)

17. The power and God-willed victory over Satan is available for the Believer in every situation of life.  (Luke 10:19; John 10:10; Ephesians 6:10-17)
